  1. Steve, thanks for posting this. I have a related question. I have a "clean" database that I keep updated every week as a "copy of master" for easier reference. Can you think of a way to compare two databases (aside from exporting both into CSV and compare the two in a spreadsheet or text comparison)? Adam
  2. I believe that in last week's Livestream, Pete said this report isn't able to push to the web (mainly due to the volatile nature of the report and how it changes every week).
  3. This title should be removed in favor of Symbiote Spider-Man: King in Black (which is the title in the indicia).
  4. I'm glad you clarified: I was going to suggest Dr. Grordbort go see his physician about not having a colon! 😁
  5. Hi, everyone, Back in the day, I used to use the Comixology pull list function to know what to expect in my LCS every weeuk until they killed it a few years ago. After that, I used to parse Diamond's weekly lists, but now DC won't be part of it moving forward. Does anyone have any recommendations on a similar service? I'm just looking for something that says "here's what to expect in your pull slot" each week, not something that does the actual ordering. Two that I've found in a quick search are League of Comic Geeks and ComicList (which also has a similar Shipping Update last that Diamond does) Thanks in advance, Adam
  6. Thanks for the heads-up; I'd had no idea. As the YouTubers say, I subscribed and hit that bell! 😁
  7. Sorry if this has been asked elsewhere, but how can we compare against the Master Database (a Rebuild Lists option in CB2017)? There have been times where titles and issues get moved around and the weekly update won't or can't make the change (so a manual correction is required). For example, the changes in the last update for Batman vs. The Incredible Hulk. Any guidance would be appreciated, please and thank you. Adam
  8. This title (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=60665&M=1) should be removed in favor of Rocky & Bullwinkle Present: The Best of Boris & Natasha (https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/TitleDetail.aspx?TitleID=62423&M=1) Hope this helps, Adam
  9. Or, if you have Professional or Archive editions, you might set up a custom field or custom checkbox to denote a Kickstarter product, but those two would only work for your own personal database and wouldn't be denoted as such in the "master" database.
  10. @Mark J. Castaneda, do these issues replace Wonder Woman (5th Series) 85 and 86? If so, those issues should be obsoleted and removed.
  11. As a one-shot (it's in the title, after all), I suspect issues 2 and 3 should be removed.
  12. S.H.I.E.L.D. (3rd Series) issues 5 & 6 should be deleted in favor of S.H.I.E.L.D. by Hickman & Weaver: The Rebirth issues 5 and 6. If I recall correctly, the series had gone on hiatus for quite a while and eventually came back under the new title (and indicia).
  13. ComicBase 2017 had an item in the Rebuild Lists options that was a way to see if there were titles and/or issues (I forget which) that weren't in the master database. That seems to have gone away with CB2020. I'd like to see it come back, so I can find those issues that may have been entered incorrectly or obsoleted (but won't "self-correct" because I have copies listed as owned).
  14. This title lists both an issue 1 and a Bk 1 that look to be the same; which is the correct one?
  15. I think Ghostbusters (3rd Series) Annual 2020 and 2020/A should be removed in favor of Ghostbusters 20/20 1 and 1/A. According to Diamond, the Ghostbusters 20/20 issues have the same street date as what the database lists for the annual issues. I've updated and submitted the Ghostbusters 20/20 issues, but I'm not deleting the Annuals (since they'll just appear back with the next update)
  16. I do have an "empty" database, but I update the content weekly so I have a mirror of the master database locally. It looks like there was some "crosstalk" with my other databases, because two of them (one being the mirror) had the same key, so I've changed it to see if that resolves the issue.
  17. I've got Sidekick set up to auto-generate reports when backing up databases, but they're literally empty: Any thoughts on what could be wrong? Adam
  18. So that actually gave me the clue I needed: I found a couple "Marvel Special Edition Featuring" titles (each independent), and one of those was Spectacular Spider-Man (which your link says was part of the same "series"). I'd conclude the title you're looking for is not in the database and should be added as "Marvel Special Edition Feature The Empire Strikes Back"
  19. Kurt, I did a search on Atomic Avenue for "Empire Strikes Back" in the Notes field and found it as Marvel Super Special #16: https://atomicavenue.com/atomic/item/126210/1/Marvel-Super-Special-16 However, it looks to be a bit different from what's shown in the link. Is this a treasury-sized comics? A book? I did find this as well: https://atomicavenue.com/issue/144008/Star-Wars-The-Empire-Strikes-Back-Bk-1 Hope this helps. Adam
  20. Kurt, there are a couple of things I do to make sure my database entries match what CB2020 is looking for; either or both may help: I keep a blank database that I update weekly (along with my main database); that way, it's a reflection of the master database on Human Computing's servers Look up titles on Atomic Avenue for those times that switching databases isn't convenient. Hope this helps, Adam
  21. FWIW, "Add By Barcode" can be used without a scanner by keying in the numbers in the UPC symbol on the cover. It's much slower, but gets the job done.
  22. I'm seeing two databases with the same ID (for example, "ComicBase Database" and "ComicBase Database.cbdb"). When I try to select the cbdb version in the dropdown (not that I'd want to delete those), it reverts to the "extension-less" version. Note that the same occurs on the My Comics reports page. Can I safely delete the older 2017-style databases?
